Vytorin: Questionable Truth In Advertising

If you have recently been diagnosed with high cholesterol and your doctor is recommending a statin drug or an equivalent, you may want to read this before having that prescription filled.

In the following video, Mike Adams (aka The Health Ranger) exposes the truth behind the marketing of the cholesterol drug Vytorin

If you are concerned about the side effect of cholesterol controlling drugs here are a few of my favorite ways for improving your health:

  • Oatmeal, of course
  • Pomegranate Juice
  • Berries, especially blueberries and strawberries
  • Seeds like pumpkin and sunflower seeds
  • Nuts -- walnuts, pine buts, almonds
  • Shitake mushrooms
  • Garlic
  • Apples
  • lots of dark green leafy vegetables
  • Dark chocolate
  • and an occasional glass of red wine
Of course, I am not a physician and this is personal opinion.
